Sadly that's how Republicans operate. They preach love and Jesus.....until they run into someone who is: Of another ethnic background, someone who has less than they do, someone who follows a different religion/god, or someone who is not 'white enough'

Then all of the sudden those same loving and god-fearing Conservatives want to literally kill you... all for the crime of being 'different'

Misogyny persists and worsens despite lip service to the contrary.

It's not just conservatives.  How many liberals called Kayleigh McEnany a whore just for for the 'crime' of being a lying piece of human garbage?

Truth is used to be the first defense.

Jankowicz's tweet set off a torrent of sexist profanities across social media and menacing emails filled with rape or death threats that continue to follow her even after she resigned from that new job

Look at all that free speech!

This Ministry of Truth was such an addle-brained idea, it's something we should have expected to have come from the prior administration.

She should not have been treated that way.

"You can communicate and connect instantly with millions of people around the globe"

*You try it and are immediately met with the n word, advertisements for dick pics, mountains of generalized, direction-less hate like Sauron's wandering eye, mob bullying, apathy, and appeal to conformity*

Person, meet People. Not theory, not idealized, not fantasy, not a team of writers developing a character with a redemption arc, but actual, ignorant and maybe some irredeemable people. And there are more of them than you. Lots more. It's the entire world!

Scary, isn't it?

Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it!

I'd quit, too, if my job was to sift through all that mess. It's basically a Pornography Moderator position. Sounds great? Wait till you see what turns on the worst of us.

Don't forget Irish protestants. And radical Muslims. And the tribes in Afghanistan. And every other group that involves humans.

The only time I believe social media worked well was during the Arab Spring.  Other than that, it has been a pox on society.

If you wouldn't post it on 4chan, why would you post it on Twitter?

Call it "victim"-blaming if you want, but I think it's well established by now that even supposedly mainstream social media is a cesspool of trolls and bots, many of which are state-sponsored. Twitter may not be quite as bad as 4chan, but it's on the same continuum. People need to stop thinking of it as a legitimate forum just because occasionally it produces gold. At a certain point you're not a victim, you actively and voluntarily engaged in garbage.

Objection.  We did not call her a whore.  We called her a farkwit.
There is a difference.  Whores earn money.  They do not send the PotUS down to Louisiana after a hurricane... to have a picture taken of the President looking out a window because someone did not check to see if there was a place said plane could land.

1st rule of social media : Don't post shiat on social media

2nd rule of social media : Don't read the comments.

/reads these comments
//googles ministry of truth
/// finds that only repubs use that term and it's another way for them to accidentally tip their hand. There is no difference between repubs. They all believe the same thing and have no unique qualities between them, except for maybe cash on hand.

1) The mistake was calling it a disinformation board. It would've been fine if they just had some nondescript name ("Intelligence Advisory Board" or something).

2) I know, I know, we all love our internets, but there really should be better prosecution for online death threats.

In general, the government should not be in the censorship business.

/there are some really limited areas where they should be
//actual top secret crap, especially during wartime, and kiddie porn, are two of the few examples I can come up with

no1curr: The internet was a mistake, social media doubly so


My AP Lang kids just finished watching The Truman Show and we were just talking about media & social media. Many of them said that they never really considered the role either have had in their lives (they're living overseas, so they don't get the bombardment that American kids do), but several of them said that the film made them delete their social media platforms because they realized that they were the commodity being sold and they didn't really like that idea. 

Today's discussion was freaking amazing.

To be fair though, the "work" she did was some of stupidest and most frivolous crap for what this job was supposed to be.

They want to rape you and kill you. Not necessarily in that order.

docilej: That Mary Poppins song she sang was quite catchy.


How much she get paid for that? Three weeks of work at an advisory board and a quick resignation - what is the going rate of pay for that work?
 
2022-05-20 11:04:38 PM  
How is affecting political change, even forcing resignations from certain positions, via threats of violence and other forms of intimidation not terrorism? Where are the prison sentences?

The only thing I ever learned from a ministry is that Jesus built my hot rod.

She should have been more accepted by the Jr High Drama Club.
/and hey, no one has pointed out how much she resembles Trollface
